Coolant lines. Where to buy them?

I'm thinking of taking my throttle body out for a good good cleaning since the plate is sticking but the coolant lines that go into it are pretty old and are not going to come out easily. I think I might damage them trying to get them out or have to cut them out. One of already has a leak from me trying to take it out.

My question is, where do you buy those coolant lines and is there a size specifications? It doesn't seem to come up on Advance auto searches.

Maybe they're called something else? Coolant lines, heater line, hose?

just take the line into advanced auto parts or auto zone and they should have some and all different sizes match the sizes up and buy however much you feel you need, its cheap

Re: Coolant lines. Where to buy them?

That's a good solution if they're not molded, preshaped lines. Dealing with the radiator and heater hoses, though, I found nothing from a FLAPS fits. For molded lines, suck up the hit and pay for factory parts -- it'll make the job much faster and you'll be sure they won't leak.
